Ally Gudeman joined our camp family summer of 2015 and serves as one of two assistant directors. She is originally from Ventura California where she lived her whole life until moving to Iowa for her undergraduate degree. She completed her Bachelors of the Arts in Religion at Northwestern College in Orange City Iowa. Throughout her time in Iowa, Ally participated in collegiate track and field, lived abroad in the Middle East, and worked on staff with Younglife camping. Ally and her husband Brett were married in 2015 and moved to Black Mountain to begin jobs with Merri-Mac and Timberlake immediately after. Ally has loved learning the traditions, songs, and overall grandeur of camp here at Merri-Mac and Timberlake and is looking forward to the summers to come.
